    B4 I buy PdaNet for tethering my new DROID, i really need to know how internet usage is measured, so i don't get hit with a huge data overage bill. Specifically, how much is being used by SKYPE w/video. Also, what about using the legal poker sites, e.g. Pokerstars, U.B., Fulltilt, etc. As far as bandwidth/downloading, is safe to tether to all these sites, or is there cause for concern re: going over 5GB per month. On MyVerizon, they tell you what your up to date cell minutes for your monthly cycle are, but i don't see that for the internet; how do you know where you stand? thanks for any help :thinking:.

    There should be a data meter under the phone's settings, if not, dl a network monitor from the Market.

    Dial #3282 and you get a text of data usage.
